  1. Gene Raymond,  Sadie McKee, 1933.  For the glib vaudevillian who brings Joan  Crawford to the Big Bad Apple and dumps her for Esther Ralston, director Clarence Brown also saw James Dunn, Leif Erickson, Arthur Jarrett and Robert Young. Hollywood Reporter said: “Swell picture… sure-fire audience… the stuff the fans cry for…”
  2. Bruce Bennett, Mildred Pierce, 1944.    Ralph Bellamy and George Coulouris were also on producer Jerry Wald’s list  listed for the weak-willed Bert, first husband of the titular Joan Crawford in the classic film noir.  Billed as Herman Brix, Bennett had been Tarzan in 1934.
